not bad, not good..

Rating:
The Good:

they feel great, don't catch up on some grinds like i've had with other forks, they have a nice weight to them and they're reasonably solid..

The Bad:

i've had my pair for about 8/9 months or so and my dropout is cracked in 3 different places, and the "anti-rounding" top cap bolt has rounded.. ironicly!

Overall Review:

these forks arent bad, and im not usually a big fan of federal products because i've ridden them before and they've broken quickly! but these have held up pretty well but i'd have liked them to last at least a year, overall pretty average..
